NBA Trash Talk: Volume XII
Hi, all. How about them Nuggets? My boys found themselves under the rule of former Seattle coach George Karl and have started to scramble up the rankings. They’re currently on an eight-game win streak, having just dealt with Pop’s people down in San Antonio, scoring the game’s final ten points to leave town with the win. Before we get into it, I have to make an apology here. The second I heard that Karl was going to take the job, I immediately began to insult the man, claiming that he and the Nuggets would be a terrible fit. Not only did he do an absolutely awful job with the so-called “Dream Team” (he coached them to a sixth-place performance in the World Basketball Championships, in case your mind has a habit of blocking out bad memories), but he also has a history of problems with certain players, especially younger guys. Knowing that he’d be dealing with Carmelo, a young fella who has previously had, ahem, “issues” with Bzdelik, I was justifiably nervous.
